The inn has been providing hospitality to locals and travellers alike for over 180 years. The Pig is a family run inn, and an atmosphere of heartfelt hospitality permeates the pub, accommodation and restaurant, as does a sense of the original 1820 settler history. The quaint Inn is also home to the oldest continuously licensed pub in the country.
National Monument Inn Dating Back to 1821
The 10 rooms have an authentic old English feel, and are all furnished with antique furniture, in keeping with the history of the inn and its status as a National Monument, along with modern Sealy Posturepedic beds and new Percale linen.
Of the 10 rooms, four are en-suite, and six are the original 1830s rooms with shared bathroom facilities.
If the age and history of the hotel give you a thrill, ask to stay in room five or room six, both of which were originally the top storey bedrooms of Thomas Hartley’s personal home, built in 1821.
